the loss of 50,000 documents through a data sharing scheme between gchq and nsa. if that amounts to oversight, the amount of oversight, the budget for oversight even now is 1.3 million pounds, supposedly a secret incidentally, which is i think about a third of the amount that the council spends on car parts. >> the prime minister in the chamber said that he wants to reach agreement, or words to that effect, with "the guardian" that if "the guardian" is not willing to see the point of view of the authorities then, with reluctance, other measures may be taken. presumably he's referring to the notices and the rest. can ask you this question? how far do you feel that there is a threat to the newspaper if you continue to publish revelations from snowden lex do you feel under pressure? >> things have happened in this country which would be inconceivable in europe or -- parts of europe and in america. they include prior restraint. they included a senior whitehall official going to see an edit to say, there's been enough debate now. they include asking for the destruction of our discs. t

to be spying on the american people. this includes history of the nsa and so forth and he said with the edwards noted documents every day is christmas in because he is learning about what we are doing now. so he has looked to telecommunications and so forth just turn over information. so we do have a history of spying, but this has gotten worse because the idea if it builds on this theory that the supreme court hacks. you don't have anything with a third party. so you shouldn't have told your banker your financial information and therefore the government can demand the information in the supreme court decided that this was fine, but think about how much more private information you and your viewers are sharing with third parties and what does your internet service provider know about you. everything is on the cloud and that means that if you take this seriously, even though the permission that we gave the government earlier, taking that 25, it's the same thing they did before the implications are greater. because we are talking about the government been being able to find out about their entire

now have the nsa, which i understand does something like $3 billion of worldwi--wide eavesdropping. so what we have that's comparable is a f--a flood tide of intelligence which seems to overwhelm the circuitry. what we seem to be lacking is--then and now is careful analy--an--analysis to say, 'well, we've got this tide of intelligence. what direction is it falling in? what do these jigsaw pieces tell us if we can put them together?' that was a failing prior to pearl harbor and obviously a failing now. c-span: vincent astor. what did he do for fdr? >> guest: well, i mentioned a moment ago that the united states didn't go into the intelligence business in a serious way until 1941. we were probably the only world power that didn't have a professional intelligence service. roosevelt relied very heavily prior to, let's say, 1940 on a circle of socialite friends as his sources. there were a group of them who styled themselves the club, and they had taken a shabby apartment on new york's upper east side. they had an unlisted phone number. they had a secret mail drop. it--it--it sounded like t

agency, the nsa, the joint chiefs of staff regularly working together. sandy chaired a tenty's committee -- deputy's committee that kept all the agencies working together. we were committed to sharing information, not hoarding it, to try to reconcile the apparent inconsistencies and then to make good decisions. you know, i love all these shows, homeland and all that stuff. i love that stuff. [laughter] but the real world involves all these cia folks out there killing themselves to figure out what is really going on and how to get that back to the oil makers. to the policymakers. and what leon says is right, you have to be an active, not passive consumer of intelligence. otherwise, someone just assumes that your bandwidth has been choked in 1994 and '95, and you wind up like we were, not even having a meeting about rwanda. because you're so obsessed with all this other stuff. so the obligation of the policymakers is to be aggressive in this saying what we need. i also agree with the comments that were made in the panel about the need to have someone representing these intelligence forces

made by snowden as far as the nsa is concerned. have they affected the dia and your ability. your agency's ability to function as usual prior to the revelations? i don't know if there is anybody that worked at nsa. it's an extraordinary capability. a national capability for our country's national security. the work force and men and women up here are some of the most talented people we have in the intelligence community today. so, you know, they are challenged today because of this incredible outpouring of attention they don't frankly deserve it. the work force doesn't deserve it. they are -- and in all the while that all of this stuff is going on in the news today, they're up there today 24/7. i wouldn't just say up there but global work force on the battle needle afghanistan and many other part of the world working 24/7 to protect our national security. national security agency is a national treasure. now to answer your question, has it affected us? absolutely. will it affect us in the future? absolutely. is what the -- the tragedy of megaproportions? absolutely. it's being deal

. [laughter] so to our friends at the nsa, we say hello. we think you're doing a great job las. [laughter] senators are famous for speaking at great length. i want to do today but let me say i have a great deal of admiration for state legislators. i developed that in my own right when i became governor. by the way, is the sender long still? path, raise your hand. senator miller is here from a indiana and senator long was a. i guess it just about. but in any event, one of our regrets i was elected at the ripe old age of 32. my birthday is in september so i have matured by the time it took office i was 33. i regretted not served in the state legislature. i served as secretary of state and i've been involved politically but i hadn't had a chance to get to know the members of the senate and house the way that i would like to come and that it did over the next eight years. i realized pretty quickly, jon, i'll be the same when utah, we have a saying in indiana that governors propose. state legislatures disposes. so i realize we needed to try to find common ground, and i had a challenge right aw

would want the allied intelligence service to do. so we spent three weeks saying the nsa isn't listening to french or spanish phone calls. there is a bi-partisan group going to brussels in two weeks and i am leading the delegation to have these discussions. we don't want to have them use this as an excuse for excluding american companies to operate in europe. there would be no reason to that. and again, these are not companies run, owned and operated or we don't plug into them as you might see in the press for american i.t. companies. i told my european agencies we sent our intelligence to a court before they go go and listening to a foreigner. name another intelligence service in the world that sends their certainss services to a third party to see if they can listen to the united states? do you think they are having this conversation in france? or china? no. the europeans screaming the loudest don't have access to their intelligence service. we will have that conversation so they don't use it. the companies are saying let's exclude the companies because they are safe because it is in f

out in a way that he tries to cover up, for example. i was sort of shocked to discover all this nsa stuff after he gave a speech talking about how all this national security state stuff was undermining us. so, i mean, i think that's the problem with the kind of presidency he's carried out in national security. and he's going to leave a party behind him that will continue what i think was the philosophical element of his foreign policy. >> next? >> dr. krauthammer, thank you for being here. you've talked a lot about the importance of politics, and i'm wondering if you know if there's any candidates you see currently or potential candidates that you think can win in 2016 and simultaneously enact a strong reform conservative agenda? >> yes. i think we're going to have a good shot in 2016. i think we're going to have a very strong field as opposed to 2012. which if i could say as an aside was a quite winnable election. and romney, who i think was an honorable man who i liked, who i supported, i voted for him, and i would have liked to see him. i think he would have been a a good preside
